The latest alpha revisions of the ANT capable protocol stacks are now available for download and evaluation from www.thisisant.com. The latest 0.6.0alpha versions of the S212 ANT SoftDevice and the S332 ANT/BLE SoftDevice can be used with Nordic’s nRF SDK 11.0.0-2.alpha and the nRF52 Development Kit (PCA10040). www.thisisant.com/developer/components/nrf52832
The revision 0.6.0alpha stacks introduce new ANT and BLE protocol features. The addition of ANT Search Uplink enables the ability for applications to send messages from searching or background scanning channels without needing to synchronize. For BLE, the ability to control external Power Amplifiers and Low Noise Amplifiers using GPIO pins has been added.  Details on the updates are available in the release notes within the download packages.

ANT Wireless Releases First Interoperable Device Profile for Bike Radar Sensors

ANT Wireless announced the member early release of the ANT+ interoperable device profile for Bike Radar sensors, the cycling industry’s first-of-its-kind wireless standard supporting radar-based cyclist safety.
For bicycle commuters and road cyclists alike, vehicular traffic is a constant source of worry and potential danger. Knowing what’s in front of you is easy, but knowing what’s behind you is not. The new device profile wirelessly transmits live feedback of the relative distance and speed of vehicles behind the cyclist and displays this critical information in front of them so they can keep their eyes on the road.
